I used orange juice and cannot imagine using the suggested cranberry juice. The flavors blended perfectly.
Easy Pork Chop Saute with Cranberries
Cranberries can be momentary pleasures, just around for late autumn - that is, unless you think to stock ahead. Buy a packet or two for the freezer so you can make this quick supper all year long. (Or out of season, look for frozen whole cranberries in the freezer case of your local market.)
6 Reviews for Easy Pork Chop Saute with Cranberries
No one in our family is a cranberry fan so I used a bag of frozen cherries (thawed) and OJ and this was wonderful! Even my very picky 9 year old ate his entire pork chop! Will definitely be making again!
Both my partner and I thought this was more bitter-tasting than expected. We both love cranberry sauce and dried cranberries (both of which are, admittedly, heavily sugared), so expected to love this. I even added a bit of brown sugar and extra honey but still didn't turn out as expected. And the dry thyme directly on the chop wasn't our fav either. I think that I might try something similar again and instead of thyme on the chop itself, maybe I will put some fresh thyme in the sauce (or even sage) and use canned whole cranberry sauce instead of the fresh cranberries. The idea is good. I suppose I could've had bad fresh cranberries, but they looked fine to me.
This recipe is very good. My picky husband even liked it! It is a quick easy meal which I really appreciate as well. We had asparagus and sauted sweet potato/carrots with it. Yummy!
